current work on the Artist's easel
I am happy to back in my Summit Studio painting away and enjoying all the summer inspirations.
We are looking forward to having people up in the studio again. If you are interested in a private showing please email or call. Here is a picture of my new painting that is almost finished. I've titled it "Umbrellas, Walking Sticks and a Rabbit",
it was an enjoyable and challenging painting to create.

Whatever you are, male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy - all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. Whatever the color, the shape, the design of the shield that conceals it, the flame inside the lamp remains the same. You are the flame.
–Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel
"The heart of a man is very much like the sea, it has it's storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has the pearls too."
–Vincent Van Gogh, The Letters of Vincent Van Gogh
"You can not swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore." –William Faulkner
